Let Me Be

Walking the roads,
I make big plans,
Going for the stars,
Up high in the sky.

Not even a mile crossed,
The resolve fades away,
and I sit down again,
Waiting for a new day.

Friends and my dear ones,
Criticize me a lot,
They think I am useless,
But don't give me one thought.

They are not me,
and That's why they don't understand,
I need some more time,
To find my path,

Lot of things I have tried,
and given up as well.
I have definitely gained.
But for that, don't put me through hell.

The dear ones say,
What comes to their heart.
They don't even realize,
They have left back a scar.

Others maybe normal,
But I simply don't feel so,
I might be a pain for now.
But I'll make all proud I know.

I warn you today,
'Coz I am sick of pleading,
I will decide my fate,
And I will be succeeding.

Others don't affect me,
Because, I have made up my mind,
Nobody decides what I am worth,
Coz I am good enough.
